What's a Mass Notification System?

Organizations use a mass notification system to reach recipients before, during and following an emergency. Systems distribute simultaneous, immediate alerts to SMS, email and/or phone call. Emergency alerts can be equipped with instructions, to ensure recipients act appropriately in times of crisis.

Mass notifications help recipients stay safe and prepared during an emergency. Emergencies include malicious activities, natural disasters, pandemics and more. The mass notification system perfects business continuity planning and crisis management.
